Veterans & Service Members lose the battle to suicide per day.

Our Mission is to go a little farther to support the needs of combat veterans.

Team Foster honors the spirit and sacrifice of Captain Erick Foster who was killed while engaging enemy forces in 2007 in Iraq. Erick pushed himself and those around him to be better. Erick is our inspiration.

“What has Team Foster done for me? It’s the contact, the invitations, the constant ‘How are you doing, do you need anything?’ They’re there for us.”

SGT Mike Geib

“Team Foster stuck behind me. When Spence had a hurdle, they provided everything we needed.”

Curtis & Spence

“Because of SSD TieRod and working with the proper people, I no longer look in the rearview mirror, I look out the front windshield because there’s a lot more to see.”

SGM (R) Robert Lighty

This week's trivia question is: What does TBI stand for and what is it?

TBI stands for traumatic brain injury and happens when sudden trauma causes damage to the brain. This can be when the head suddenly or violently hits or is hit by an object, or when an object pierces the skull and enters the brain.  Symptoms vary depending on the extent of the damage to the brain. Service dogs can help vets suffering from TBI!
We ride bikes and we raise money but what exactly does Team Foster do? Check out our website for testimonials from the vets we've helped!

After hearing and connecting with SGT Greg Goodwin, Sgt. Goodwin L518, and Ssgt. Anthony Goodwin, Team Foster decided to assist the Goodwin family by covering all of Sgt. Goodwin L518’s medical costs. This includes veterinarian visits, medications, physical therapy and the treatment he needs to improve his health.

17 year old North Philadelphia native, Kaheem Bailey-Taylor, who is also a JROTC Cadet sprang into action at a recent birthday party when gunshots rang out. Bailey- Taylor used first-aid skills learned in his Philadelphia public school’s Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps program to help save his friend’s life. On Friday, Bailey-Taylor will receive the Medal of Heroism, the highest honor the U.S. Army gives to JROTC cadets. This young man is certainly a hero! Check out the whole article on the Philadelphia Inquirer page!
